Thoughtful Piece on Wind and Nuclear

Hats off to Jean Marbella of the Baltimore Sun for this thoughtful column on local resistance to the siting of wind power plants. A "think piece" in the best sense of the word. Sample excerpt:
Concerns remain over how the turbines would affect the vistas from Ocean City and other beaches - strange concerns, I think, given the neon-lit and Big Peckers-type of bars and amusements that already mar our coastline - but surely they would be a small price to pay for the state not going dark in the coming years from a predicted shortage of electricity.
